One of the most profound things in this short speach, is the message Ashton get Steve Jobs gave Ashton:
When you grow up, you tend to get told that the world is the way that it is. And that your life is to live your life inside the world and try not to get into too much trouble, and maybe get an education, and get a job, and make some money and have a family. But life can be a lot broader than that, when you realize one simple thing. And that is that everything around us that we call life was made up by people that are no smarter than you. And you can build your own things, you can build your own life that other people can live in. So build a life, don’t live one! – Steve Jobs, paraphrased by Ashton Kutcher
Are you building your life?
